The conflict to be resolved in our era is — the rift between those who believe that evolution is an upward and outward linear progress in time and space, and those who believe evolution is a spiraling process inside time and space, bouncing between the eternal and the now, between the unmanifest and the manifest, between the archetype and the complex, between the godhead and his co-creator, Sophia, for its ever-changing identity. The former believe the future is unknowable, the later believe the eternal is unknowable. So the former chases after the future, and the later chases after creation.
I am in the group that chases after creation because we believe this is the way to know the eternal. This is a central tenet of Jungian psychology; and it is what separates the Freudians from the Jungians. Is the origin of Ego connected to the Self Archetype [God] or is the ego simply a construct created in the battle between pleasure and pain? If you quiz the biologists, who profess the latter, you will find they do not see their domain springing from physics.
I’m not sure if we can prove one way or another that spirit came before matter, or visa versa. I think this is the one, and only, place faith is required. Certainly we can read through the documents of anthropologists and archeologists and see the preponderance of material supporting the theory that spirit gave birth to matter. However, only those who are inclined to read and believe these reports will get it. It seems so obvious to me. To follow the opposing argument back to its roots you find a belief in chaos, in meaninglessness, and man’s superior ability to tackle both, or to be lost in existentialism. And therefore the man, or corporation, who has the loudest proclamation will win.
And if one believes this to be truth, then Nature has no voice; women’s intuition has no voice. The irony of this silly progression in irrationality is their biological origins were abandoned. How does one say biology is the beginning of everything and then abandon nature’s laws? Perhaps only those prone to illogical thinking can explain this, or those prone to ruling the world like the stupid lords before. But those who have investigated their rational and irrational ways of being along with their socially embedded beliefs will not fall for these paroxysms of stupid atheists and scientists.
If you have a choice – then choose life not death, choose humanity not corporations, choose self not ego, choose We not I.
